University of CO
The Best Western Boulder Inn is prominently located just across the street from the University of Colorado.
Whether you are visiting the campus for business or pleasure, you will be happy to find yourself within steps of many of the prominent buildings on campus. You won’t find a closer hotel to the Engineering Center, Leeds School of Business, Wolf Law School, Fiske Planetarium, or Coors Events Center. Folsom Field and the University Memorial Center are also just a short walk away.
The University of Colorado, known as CU to the locals, is a top level research facility that has received over $280 million in sponsored research awards. CU offers its 30,000 students over 85 bachelor level majors, 70 at the masters level, and 50 at the doctoral level. The main campus sits on 600 beautiful acres in the heart of Boulder, named the smartest city in the U.S. by Forbes magazine. In 1976 the American Institute of Architects recognized the campus, which includes more than 200 rural-Italian-style buildings, as “one of America’s most significant works of architecture.”
CU’s Buffaloes look forward to joining the Pac 10 conference, leading to some exciting games against new opponents. Between the varsity football, basketball, soccer, track and field, golf, cross country, and volleyball teams, there is plenty of action to see.
